Looking for some answers about our fire damage services? You’re in the right place. The team at ServiceMaster by CME shared our thoughts on some of the most common questions we get to help you understand what steps you should take and what you can expect in the process. Check them out:
How Long does Fire Damage Restoration Take?
Fire damage restoration can take a few days to several weeks, or even a month. It entirely depends on the severity of the damage that your property incurred. If only a small space in your home has experienced a fire, it will take much less time to restore than the entire house. It’s best to ask your hired restoration services how much time it will take to restore to get the right estimation.
Do I Have to Move from House?
When your house experiences fire, you immediately need to leave the property and call ServiceMaster by CME to fix the damage. We recommend you stay away from the house until we complete an inspection. If the house has experienced significant damages, you may need to move from the house for a few days or weeks. Our team will determine that upon arrival.
Can I Restore Fire Damage Myself?
The simple answer is no. Fire damage requires immense experience and skills to properly restore. One mistake can make the situation worse. Our team is fully trained and highly equipped, so they can manage the situation easily. They also understand what type of damage can be life-threatening and will take certain measures to protect themselves.
What are Safety Concerns of Fire Damage?
Fire damage not only burns and impacts your belongings, furniture, and indoor architecture but also damages the foundation of the property. Your walls, roof, lighting, and other fixtures can potentially collapse in on you. In many cases, there is also a risk of fire reoccurring. Electrical cords and appliances can also short-circuit. So, make sure to get out of the house after a fire, turn off the appliances, and turn off the main circuit of your property.
